King climbs from the De Vaul trailhead up to the end of the main ridge in the Irish Hills Open Space. It's fun ridden either up or down. The trail first traverses steep grassy hillsides, then ducks into some trees before gaining more grassy ground via two switchbacks. Just below the ridge, the trail changes character to Irish Hills rocks and continues up to a paved access road.

The rut is FILLED! Trail is running smooth, grass is a little tall but little to no thistle on the trail. Overall good condition!
